Duration: 4 minutes
driving, saw cigar craft. Moving slowly. Began to fall--started wobbling. Corrected self. Flew off.

Me, my sister, and my fiance were driving in Tacoma, WA on July 6, 1999 down 74th st westbound. I looked south toward McChord AFB and noticed a cigar shaped craft moving slowly east. I alerted the others to it. My sister saw it, but my fiance could not make it out.(She wasn't wearing her glasses.) It was about 6-10 miles away at about 20 ft. above the treeline.(From my perspective.) We turned right on Wapato St. and I continued watching it. Then we turned right on 70th St. and pulled into our driveway. I continued watching it and it suddenly appeared to fall straight down. The entire time the sun would occasionaly glint very brightly off it. I have never seen something moving, stop on a dime and fall straight down. It fell for about 5 seconds, and then flew away downward at a 45 degree angle, headed due east and was lost from sight behind a hill. Whoa...
